I must have missed something as I find it the most annoying, puerile, predictable POS I have seen in a long time. Glenn Close couldn't resurrect something as terrible as this and even somebody as talented as her, was made to look bad reading those silly lines. I am impressed that somebody who wrote as poorly as this would have the courage to put their name on it.

This engrossing legal thriller is led by the phenomenal Glenn Close. She steals the show, but that's not to say the rest of the cast isn't great too. The show is well-written, and has more than 50 shades of judicial, and ethical grey.

Fantastic legal thriller with some excellent writing and performances. Some episodes stray a little too far into Hollywood-style implausibility, but on the whole it plays out like one would imagine high-stakes litigation is actually settled- down and very dirty.

I have just finished the second season and look forward to going back for more. There are some excellent actors here and Glenn Close is outstanding as the lead. I also like that the storylines continue throughout the seasons and that not everything is wrapped up in a neat little package.

There are moments where the writing could be stronger is what keeps me from giving this series a full five stars, but it is still so much better than a lot of TV offerings out there.
